Pastore Brewing and Blending are launching their first homebrew competition. As some of you may know they are specialists in mixed fermentation and all things funky. All the team here were/still are homebrewers and so combining homebrewing and mixed fermentation is a bit of a no brainer to us. We wanted to make the competition as accessible to people as possible so whether you are sour newbie or a master of milking the funk, we want you to have a go! We’ve run a few tours and tastings for homebrew clubs recently and have realised that people are interested in brewing their own mixed ferm/funky beer but need a push to get started, well here it is!

We’ve teamed up with our friends over at The Malt Miller to provide a base malt kit but everything else is in your hands. Whether you want to pitch a combination of 20+ yeasts and bacteria or simply pitch philly sour, boil or no boil, hops or no hops, puree or whole fruit, brett or lactobacillus it’s up to you! We are giving you a 5-month window to brew your beer and send three bottles to us in the last couple of weeks of February labelled. This means if you want to age something you will have ample opportunity to do so.

We will judge every beer individually so a kettle sour or hoppy saison has an equal chance to win as a pseudo-lambic does. The BJCP guidelines for these styles are notoriously a point of contention within the mixed fermentation community hence why we aren’t quoting a style guideline. We strongly encourage experimentation and the weird and wonderful, so we don’t want to put anyone in a box. The only real rule is to keep it funky and/or sour.
